Fresno and Sanger CSWs partner with Exploratorium to bring Making to 21st CCLCs

The Fresno and Sanger CSW programs are excited to be the California representatives on a special Interagency Partnership with the Exploratorium and US Department of Education to bring hands-on STEM learning opportunities to high-need students during after-school and out-of-school time. Parallel projects will be occurring at the Children’s Museum of Houston (Texas), Frost Museum of Science (Florida), Franklin Institute (Pennsylvania), and New York Hall of Science (New York).

Taking the role of Science-Rich Educational Institutions in the project, Fresno and Sanger CSWs have hosted a professional development workshop for 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) staff in their region and will be following-up with 6 making sessions at each of the 5 CCLC partner sites. So far CCLC staff have shown an overwhelmingly positive and excited response, and we are looking forward to an aggressive series of 30 making sessions in the upcoming months across the Highway 99 corridor of the Central Valley.
